Why Someone Worth $120M Cut Themselves Off From Making More Money
May 14 2024
Why Someone Worth $120M Cut Themselves Off From Making More Money
Remember when Andrew Carnegie wrote that he was removing the pursuit of money from his life? Probably not, because he didn’t follow through on it. This was even before he founded the Carnegie Steel Corporation and became one of the richest people in the world. Today’s guest, however, also decided to cut himself off from earning more. And he followed through. By the time Jeff was in his forties, he was worth over $120 million. After a three-part exit from his company, Jeff decided that pursuing more money was getting in the way of his pursuit of happiness. So he quit building companies, he quit working, and he founded a support group of others in similar life stages. For Jeff, chasing money had become like an addiction, so he treated it that way. He made big changes in his life to focus on what truly made him happy. But, this “cut-off” from earning more does not coincide with spending less. In fact… it’s quite the opposite. In this episode of Moneywise, we'll learn about how Jeff realized he had enough, how his pursuit of more was getting in the way of enjoying what he built, and why he thinks it's his duty to spend his money. And of course, we'll also get into all the details about how much he has, where all that money is, and how he spends it.

The Personal Finances of a $200M/year Ecom Business Owner (and why he’s giving away his money)

The Personal Finances of a $200M/year Ecom Business Owner (and why he’s giving away his money)
Last year, Mike Beckham donated 1 million dollars.  This year, he's setting his sights even higher. He wants to give away 50% of his annual income. And that's not all—his company, Simple Modern, with a valuation of around 350 million dollars, also allocates 10% of its profits each year to charitable causes. Mike's journey to philanthropy has been shaped by a deep-rooted commitment to making a difference. Despite starting his career in the nonprofit sector, he discovered his knack for business growth and decided to leverage his skills to amplify his impact. So he left the nonprofit world and built Simple Modern. For Mike, donating his money is about more than just creating a positive impact in the world (although that is a big part). Mike has found that donating his money helps him refrain from spending that doesn’t bring happiness to his life, and allows him to have more success in the most important part of his life: his relationships with others.  In this episode of Moneywise, Mike will explain all of the benefits of donating. He’ll make the personal and financial cases, including how it’s helped his business succeed. He’ll also give tips on donating effectively, especially if you’re just starting. And as usual, Mike will explain how he made all his money, how he spends it, and give us all the dollar details.

Born a Billionaire: How to Avoid Wealth Robbing Your Kids of Purposeful Lives
Being born rich sounds like a dream, but it’s almost like being born at the finish line, with no race left to run. If we’ve learned anything in this podcast so far, it’s that money alone doesn’t bring happiness. Life needs purpose. But when you already have access to everything you could possibly need, finding that purpose can be difficult. So, how do we ensure our children inherit not just wealth, but also the drive to make something meaningful out of their lives? How do we shield them from the pitfalls of affluence, like aimlessness and substance abuse? Taylor Adams has dedicated his life to helping parents successfully pass on their wealth to the next generation with his company Belief Partners. He believes that a large part of happiness comes from the act of adding value to the world around you, feeling like you matter. He works to empower parents to instill in their children the importance of adding value to the world, of feeling like they matter beyond their bank accounts Taylor knows the feeling of being aimless all too well. Born into a multi-generational billionaire family, he himself has experienced the luxury, pressure, and burden of wealth.  In this episode, Taylor bares all, offering his personal narrative alongside professional research and strategies for navigating the complexities of inherited wealth. From finding purpose to avoiding the traps of excess, Taylor equips affluent parents with the tools they need to raise grounded, fulfilled individuals. Alongside Taylor, we’ll also hear from Jane. In contrast to Taylor’s strong recommendation to set up a trust for your kids, Jane’s parents paid for necessities through her life, but will pass on their wealth through a lump sum inheritance of roughly $20 million. She’ll tell us how their wealth impacted her life, how she found purpose in her own career and family, and how the knowledge of inheritance has affected her.

Illiquid Assets and Over-investing in Yourself

Illiquid Assets and Over-investing in Yourself
If you’re already living the lifestyle you want, what is the point of liquid assets? Is there too much risk in tying up the vast majority of your assets? And more importantly, if you already have far more money than you’ll ever need, what is the purpose in continuing to invest for the future when you could be enjoying that money in the present? “Dave” is worth about $150 million, yet he lives on a $600,000 salary that doesn’t even cover his monthly spend. Instead of using his existing wealth, he’s keeping most of it tied up in private businesses, angel investments, crypto, real estate, and a very small public portfolio. But why? “Dave” is in the early stages of an experiment where he massively over invests in himself, just to see what he can do. That also includes hiring a personal team so he doesn’t have to lift a finger with home chores.  In this episode, “Dave” will walk us through why he’s living this way, how it impacts how he can spend his money, and we’ll get a detailed breakdown of exactly where all of his money is and how much he has access to. He’ll also tell us about his experiment: why he’s running it, what it actually looks like, and how it’s working out.

Is a 24,000 sq ft Home Worth It?
If you have the money to put anything you could possibly want in your home, should you do it? This episode’s guest, “Hank” did, and as a result, his home ended up being 24,000 square feet.

The Realities of Retiring Early

The Realities of Retiring Early
The point of money is to make life easier. To give you security, comfort, and the ability to do the things that make you happy. So if you’ve made enough to take care of that for life, you can just stop making more… right? Retiring early is a dream for many, but what happens when you actually do it? In this episode we explore the story of two guests who did just that, though they came about it in different ways. Our first guest, “Ryan”, made over $20 million after selling his business, then decided to step away from working and enjoy his money. “Jeff” however, made his money in a series of smaller sales and soon realized he had accumulated enough where his investments outperformed his work income. Since retiring, both “Ryan” and “Jeff” have gone through similar stages of appreciation, loss, and rediscovering purpose in their lives.  In this episode, we explore the ups and downs of retiring early, how much money they have that allows them to live off their investments and what they do with it. They’ll tell us about the external pressure to start something new, how they dealt with the feelings of loss, and what they do with their time now. Check out Ryan’s blog After The Exit.

Why Someone Worth $150M Liquid Only Spends $5K Monthly
Imagine being worth $150 million. Liquid.  Now imagine being worth that much, and only spending $5,000 a month. That’s the reality for this episode’s guest. “Cam” is going to share a lot of financial details with us, so he’s asked to remain anonymous.

That happened in his late 30s.  In his early 30s, Cam was still only worth a couple grand. There’re a lot of crazy stories in between that we’ll hear about in this episode.

How much money Ankur Nagpal needs to be happy for life
How much money do you need to be happy? Money alone is not going to make you a happy person, but it can sure as hell help you get there. Money can buy you security, time, health, and safety for you and your loved ones, and it can relieve stress when it comes to life's financial pressures. To say that money can't impact your happiness is naive. But what we want to know is, when is enough, enough? If you don't know that number, you can easily slip into the hole of always needing and wanting more, which inevitably takes away from your happiness. At a certain point, you start wasting your time and adding stress to your life in the never-ending pursuit of more. So what is the threshold when it's time to end the chase and simply enjoy the life you've built for yourself? In this episode, Ankur Nagpal shared his number. Ankur Nagpal is in his early thirties with a net worth north of nine figures. He started raking in money in college with his Facebook App business, but his real life-changing moment was when he sold his company Teachable for a quarter billion dollars. Now, he's the founder of fintech company Carry, formerly known as Ocho. Ankur will tell us about the financial decisions he made that contributed to his happiness, the mistakes he made, and he's radically transparent about the numbers while he does so. Sam will also share his own "happiness threshold" number, and we'll also get input from another guy who rakes in over $10 million a year. Do you want more of the show? Fill out our survey!
